    "Yeah, this guy came to the dojo and was all polite and shit, but he wore a BLUE BELT. What a fucking douchebag, we crushed the shit out of him, ha ha, fucking asshole!"

    Doesn't sound a place I'd want to train at and not the person I'd like to learn judo from. This shit is part of the reason why I've yet to try judo, being a BJJ purple.

      Because you're afraid you will get owned? Can't be a very good purple belt then...

        It sounds like the guy came in, ran a session with you guys and then left and was polite the entire time. I'm guessing he let someone in charge know that he was coming and just figured he'd wear the stuff he already has for the one time he'd be in.

        Honestly, he sounds like a decent guy. I'm not sure what the problem was. He might have broken some "tradition" rules, but I know a lot of guys that just don't take that stuff seriously.

          Uh, assuming we're doing throws, I would EXPECT to get owned.

            Judo guys are always jelly of the beejayjayers. Wearing your belt around them fuels the fire!

              Who throws away their white belt once they grade?
              Of course he had a white belt at home he can use. Grading to blue belt doesn't delete your white belt.

                I completely agree that it would be more polite to spend the time to find the actual white belt, it's just that there are perfectly legitimate reasons for him to be wearing a blue belt (maybe he forgot to pack the white belt).

                  So ... am I right in assuming the only thing this guy did wrong was wear his BJJ gear to a Judo lesson? Or did he do other things that were considered bad or douchebaggery?

                    Judo club owner: So you're new here?
                    Randomer: Yes.
                    JCO: You done any of this before?
                    R: Yes I've done some BJJ
                    JCO: Ok, cool. What belt are you in BJJ?
                    R: Blue belt.
                    JCO: Ok cool do you mind wearing a white belt for Judo, we have a few spare.
                    R: Sure, of course not.
                    JCO: Okay cool nice to have you aboard.

                    That's all that needs to happen. And then everybody has a good time.

                        I never wear my belt to another place unless they know me or I'm invited to. Of course that opens up a whole new can of worms.

                          I have never worn my belt to another club, unless (as stated above, I was invited to do so as a rep from another club).

                          But, that being said, I wouldn't automatically think the guy was a douchebag and beat the shit out of him if he did. And I've seen it a few times, I had TKDer's Karateka's show up from other places with their belt on.

                            Yea like I said, offer him a belt, he probably would have taken it.

                              I know you kiddies find this hard to believe, but wearing a gi or belt from another dojo is a CHALLENGE. Traditionally, it is the equivalent of a gong sau. But most places simply ignore it and let it go, which is exactly what the coach did. He did not give a shit. At the end of class, he sparred the new potential student. The potential student got owned. I would be lying to you if I said I did not like that. Because I understand the basic manners involved, I like the moment of truth.

                              Now that being said, it's a pet peeve of mine, and nothing more. I don't represent the dojo, I am not the coach, and the interaction that I saw was 100% cool on both sides. He was a class act. The coach was a class act. I thought he was somewhat of a douche and yes, deserved to get owned. But who gives a fuck what I think?

                                You know you grow up learning manners. You say "Please", "May I", "Thank You".....when you enter a sport or area of life you don't know about the polite thing to do is learn the basics of etiquette. You don't have to like them and truthfully you don't have to know why, it's just usually polite to do so, you have no idea how important those behaviors are to the other person.

                                In the end it comes down to humility.
